Document Description
The U.S. Department of the Interior/Bureau of Land Management (BLM) prepared an Environmental Assessment/Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the above-named project, which identifies and evaluates the potential for significant environmental impacts from the proposed project. The BLM completed its review of the FONSI and signed a Record of Decision on May 12, 2021 approving the proposed project. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (PRC §21000, et seq.) and the CEQA Guidelines (14 CCR 15000, et seq.), and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the California Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (Division) is the CEQA lead agency for the proposed project, while the BLM is the NEPA lead agency. The Division has reviewed BLM’s approved FONSI (DOI-BLM-CA-CO60-2021-0048-EA) and finds that it meets the requirements of CEQA. BLM found that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment; therefore, the Division intends to use the FONSI rather than preparing a Negative Declaration for this project. Project Description: Macpherson Oil Company (Macpherson) proposes to drill one new oil well, including the grading of one well pad and installation of associated power poles and pipelines, as needed. The project would occur on public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a maximum possible soil disturbance of 1.848 acres. The proposed project site is not present on any of the lists enumerated under Section 65962.5 of the Government Code including, but not limited to lists of hazardous waste facilities, land designated as hazardous waste property and hazardous waste disposal sites, and the information in the Hazardous Waste and Substances Statement required under subdivision (f) of that section.
